Tweeps were left debating a shooting incident that reportedly took place at Pharaoh's Lounge over the weekend. Businessman Shapwa Kanyama allegedly pistol-whipped Oumar but accidentally shot a car guard. 

The graphic images of the shooting went viral where the car guard's bullet wounds were clearly visible. 

According to Namibian Sun the Khomas police said an arrest would be made against the parties involved. 

The perpetrator would be charged with assault through grievous bodily harm as well as attempted murder. He could have also been charged with negligent handling of a firearm. 

"Khomas police told Namibian Sun this morning that “arrest is imminent” in the shooting incident involving businessman Shapwa Kanyama, which allegedly happened at a local club on Friday night.

"Regional commander Commissioner Ismael Basson says charges of assault...through grievous bodily harm and attempted murder, alternatively negligent handling of a firearm, have been opened against Kanyama, who allegedly shot a car guard. Preliminary police investigations show that Kanyama “fought with somebody and hit him with a firearm and thereafter he cocked his gun and in the process, the bullet went off and struck a car guard”.
But the case quickly took a U-turn when the publication reported that all the parties involved have reconciled and dropped the charges against the businessman.

Much to many people's outrage, this would not have been the ideal outcome in such a case. Especially since everyone wanted the businessman to get sued by the car guard. 
"Khomas police regional commander Ismael Basson says the complainants in the shooting incident involving businessman Shapwa Kanyama have both withdrawn their cases against him. Basson said police will pursue the charge of negligent handling of firearm in a municipal area."
